Harvest Time

Despite the severe lack of rain we've had this summer, our harvests have been wonderful.
And, unfortunately for me, since most everything and anything at the moment makes me sick, harvesting isn't something I am helping hubby out with much, but, none the less!

We had a great garlic harvest!

Our tomato's this year are off the hook! Which is great because last year we basically had none. But again, I am sad I am not enjoying as many as I had planned. 

We did get 3 qts canned today and 2 pts of sauce. There were 4 qts....until the bottom blew out on one. Don't you HATE it when that happens. Canning tomato's isn't two tedious when 2 are involved. Hubby and I have our assembly line down to a science. He cores and scores, I blanch and peel. 

The Zucchini , Squash and Broccoli have been off the hook! I am pretty sure there is a such thing as too much Zucchini!

We have a lot of great crops here in Washington, but sadly, the tomatoes have never come up to my expectations. The south, east coast and midwest have the best and I'm drooling over those gorgeous ones in your harvest! XOXO
